    I recently bought a satin sleep bonnet to protect my hair while I sleep, it's suppperrr comfortable, and it stays on all night. I'm used to sleeping in a bun but lately they've been hurting my head sooo badly and pulling out hair from the weight. I was skeptical that the hair bonnet would stay on but it does, and it's large enough to contain my waist length hair and I think it could handle at least 6-8 more inches of hair easily. Also, the one I have is adjustable, which is definitely helpful.

    I haven't yet figured out if this would do more harm than good, but a velvet stretch headband (aka wig grip) will keep anything on my head while sleeping. Velvet should be gentle for hair, shouldn't it?

    I have one too! Not a specifically for a wig, but it works just the same. I get frizzies from it, so I figured there's some friction going on. I think it's better than e.g. hair clips since the "weight" is distributed. I dunno, I just have a gut feeling that velvet does put stress on the hair simply because it's so "grippy". Then again, I've never actually seen any damage, just the frizzies, so I'm honestly not overly concerned.

    I have a stay on satin bonnet, but if I sleep with it under my fringe (around my forehead) it's pretty tight. I snipped a bit of the elastic and it helped a bit but then I end up with my fringe sticking up.
    If I sleep with it above my fringe, it falls off. I do fidget a lot in my sleep. I was considering getting a pocket bonnet so the length of my hair could go in the pocket rather than being tucked up but I'm not sure it would stay on.
    I don't like braiding to sleep because I prefer not to have braid waves.

    I wonder if hair taping would create enough of a bump to prevent a sleep cap from sliding off. I have no idea if that would be comfortable to sleep with, that may depend on your sleeping habits and head sensitivity.
